Web Identity Theft Ring Based in IE Adware

| 0 Comments »

I am not generally one to forward virus or adware warnings, but this one may deserve your attention. According to a recent eWeek magazine article, Spyware researchers have discovered a massive identity theft ring linked to an Internet Explorer adware program responsible for hijacking confidential data from millions of infected computers. If you use Internet Explorer on Windows, there is a chance your computer could be infected. The good news is that there is a free and effective cleaner tool available from Trend Micro, a trusted antivirus vendor, to remove the program. I downloaded the tool to ensure my Windows computers are safe; you may wish to do the same.
